  • depends on the sun index...usually aboutr 15 minutes prior to being in the sun is a good idea

  • At least 15-20 minutes, so it has time to soak in.

  • Put the sunscreen before you leave the house. The level of the UVB protection is how long it will protect until you need apply more. So once your son is out in the sun (I am assuming you are using and SPF 50/60) he will be protected for about an hour.
